Worship the "Grand Architect" and become part of the "Free" masons.
Nothing free about worshiping a make believe space wizard as a mandatory part of recruitment.
We don't worship anything in Freemasonry. The Great Architect of the Universe is a symbol used by Masons during our meetings so that men of all
Faiths may pray together as Brothers. It is a representation of God, it is not a deity.
"Great Architect of the Universe, in thy name we have assembled"... The symbol is a substitution per se.
"All mighty Father, blabla bla."
In the Lords name , bla bla
In the name of Allah the Great, bla bla bla
Because Masonry unites men of all faith in harmony, we choose to use a symbol for deity, instead of a specific deity.
I hope that clears things up for you a bit.
